Oxford v Bolton Betting Preview – League One 21st March 7.45pm
The Trotters will be looking to capitalize on a big opportunity in this away fixture at Oxford. Bolton start the game in second place in League One and they can consolidate that spot with three points because this is a game in hand that they have over those around them. So a big opportunity for them, but this isn’t an easy game against Oxford, who will be able to push themselves close the play off places if they can roll out a win in Tuesday night’s game.

Oxford v Bolton Betting Tips
An interesting game between these two at the Kassam Stadium then and there haven’t been a lot of goals between them in recent meetings there. The last two in fact have been drawn 0-0 and in the Coral Correct Score market a 0-0 draw is trading at a price of 9/1 and that could have some appeal. Oxford need to up their game though because they have lost three of their last four at home in the, failing to score in two of their last three. It is just two wins in their last eight on home soil now in League One for the U’s. Under 2.5 goals on the fixture returns a price of 8/11. Just 33% of Oxford’s league home games this season have gone over the 2.5 goal line. Oxford did land a 2-0 away win at Bolton earlier in the season but they are on a three match winless streak at home against the Trotters with no goals scored in that sequence. Oxford’s 2-0 win over the Trotters earlier in the season snapped a six match winless streak that they were on against Bolton. Overall this season, Oxford have posted a W8 D4 L6 record at home this season.
The Trotters have put together a good promotion push this season then, but even a win in this one would leave them six points behind leaders Sheffield United. The Trotters have gone W8 D4 L5 out on the road this season and they have put together a two match winning streak on the road, scoring four goals exactly in each of their last two road games. That has been their only two wins in their last seven road games in the league. Just 35% of Bolton’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals so again, it suggests that this will be a low scoring, tight game. Bolton are currently on a five match unbeaten streak in the league (W3 D2) home and away so have the resiliency to stick in there, even though they have taken just the one clean sheet in their last eight road games in the league. Bolton to win to nil at Coral in this one is a big 7/2 price and up in the anytime goalscorer market, joint favourites at Coral are Oxford Chris Maguire and Oxford’s Conor McAleny.

Oxford v Bolton Predictions
Draw: It is hard to pick a winner out of these two, especially heading into midweek action. Bolton’s away form has only just improved and Oxford haven’t been going great guns on home soil lately, so it is worth settling for parity. Goals are likely going to be at a premium so it could be worth pushing under 1.5 goals on the match up.
